Tat/Gedanke (the doing/the thinking) (2011)

Referring to Heine’s epic poem “Germany. A Winter´s Tale” a hollow voice repeatedly keeps saying: “Ich bin die Tat zu deinen Gedanken” (“ I am the execution of your thinking”). The piece is played simultaneously at several places inside an apartment block. If possible, you can walk in each apartment for a short time where the local, already existing machinery (CD player, cassette player, computer) is used.
The time it was displayed within the apartment block in Karlsruhe not all the residents participated. The text came mostly from personal computers, but also from stereos and a cassette recorder.
